As within, so without. In other words, it’s time to take out the garbage. A general sense of discontentment lingers. You want to move forward and be enthused about what’s ahead of you, but find that you cannot. What is causing you to withdraw? Spend some time alone. Replenish your energy as you draw in love, hope, and renewal from the Universe. It is through this process that you will receive the answers you are waiting for.
Breathe out the negativity, Taurus, so you can make space for pure, unadulterated hope. The week of sweet revival is here — you know, the one of feeling that ‘this too shall pass’ and that you are loved and taken care of. Spend some time loving yourself. Do all the things that make you feel good. Take a walk on the wild side, if you can. Befriending nature is sure to fill the cauldron of hope.
This or that, darling? Which way can I move forward? Often we are stuck in life because we feel divided, which in turn leads to a lack of clarity. To find the way forward, bring your awareness to a state of union. Connect with your higher self for guidance. Work on uniting the head and heart.
Oh, the judgments we inflict upon ourselves. Not good enough. Not talented enough. Not pretty enough. Not enough. What if you were to collect all of them in one big basket, throw the basket out of the window, and start over? Oh, darling, you are more than enough! Nobody can give the world the things that you can give. So spread your wings, butterfly!
Isn’t freedom the very essence of our souls? Then what’s keeping us from feeling the wings that facilitate this movement? As you mull over this Leo, you will realise that self-sabotage is one of the biggest forms of bondage. Sometimes we inflict this upon ourselves when we don’t believe in our own potential. At other times, we hush the voices in our heads to listen to the voices of others instead. Break free from these toxic bonds. Find the path of inner liberation.
Make this week about you, you, you! Indulge yourself silly. Listen to your heart’s desire. You know that you’ve earned this. Do you have a taste for the finer things? Do you consider yourself a connoisseur of any kind? The cards are guiding you to use this skill set to redefine your work, add a new dimension, or explore a new possibility. The world needs your magic!
Hello, showstopper! Time to show them what you’re made of. Every now and then, we feel like we’re being pushed and pulled. That our expectations aren’t being met. And that we are worth so much more. Be clear about your goals and intentions. Make this intent clear in the workplace too. Express your intentions tactfully, but stand your ground firmly. Then watch how the scales tip in your favour!
In the realm of work, this week is all about apprenticeship. About learning new skills or sharpening the ones you have. Yes, you’re multitalented and have many skills to boast of. But the truth is you cannot know everything. So be open to the guidance of those who are a few steps ahead of you. Remind yourself how this will benefit you when the voice of your ego prevails.
Never underestimate the power of a sister circle. Did you know that the company of the women you love can heal your soul? Did you know that women have been using stories to bring joy to each other since time immemorial? Get your besties together for a night of cocktails and debauchery or simply a pajama party. Don’t let the word about that boyfriend bonfire get out!
No more freewheeling, Capri! It’s time to bring some order and discipline. What is it that you want to achieve? Be clear about your goals. That’s the first step to building the pathway. Next step: establishing a routine. Begin by making small changes — like waking up earlier each day, or beginning your day with a meditation practice. The more you focus, the better you will be able to manifest your intention.
Spirit to matter and matter to spirit. What a beautiful week, this. You have everything that your heart desires. Being fulfilled materialistically and having all your needs taken care of gives you enough time to focus on your emotional and spiritual needs. Pray, chant, meditate. Listen to songs that make your soul sing. Spend some time in nature. That’s the perfect way to rejuvenate and get ready for the next chapter.
Sometimes, it’s easier to shove things under the carpet. Oh brave Pisces, you will look the monster in the eye instead! Are you hurting about something? Are the scars raw and fresh? Then why is your mind denying you from getting in touch with this pain? We must learn to address pain as we address happiness. Get to the very root of it. Understand what it’s teaching you about you. That’s the only way to transform it!
